I THE EXPRESS ROBBERY. The Preliminary Examination Otis Savage and Ralph Giboiis For tbe Crime. Wednesday's Report. Justice Davis, yesterday afternoon, adjourned the "examination of the ex press robbers from the building in which he usually considers his temple of jus tice to the court room. As soon as the ex tortion case was disposed of the case of the state vs. Otis Savage was called, and, after some legal sparring on technical ties, an order was made by the court ex cluding all witnesses from the court room, both for the state and defendant, except the one who was testifying. The state was represented by District Attorney Jayne and the. defendant by H. S. Wilson. After all preliminaries were arraigned the court adjourned un til half past 7 o'ciock when the exami nation was continued, The first witness on the stand was Mr. F. N. Hill, the agent of the Pacific Express Co. in this city. He recounted the facts of hauling the treasure box on the night in which the robbery was committed from the train to tho office, placing it inside the door, and then proceeding to the pott- office with the mail. There was nothing new drawn out in his testimony, with which our people are not already familiar. Mr. James Blakely was next called and he Was followed by Mr. M. A Moody. The testimony of these wit neases was in- reference to the time of the robbery, footprints leading from the office, and that these were measured and patterns cut. from them. This ended the examination last night, and the court adjourned until 9 o'clock this morning. This morning, when tbe case was called, the justice held a preliminary ex amination of both defendants at the same time, Otis Bavage and Ralph Gibons Judge Bennet was counsel for Gibons and Zera Snow of Portland was added to the counsel far the state. - Chas. Tibbetts was the first witness called, and he gave testimony regarding his duties in the express office. He was followed by Mr. Simmons, the detective, who detailed his experiences in tracing the stolen specie to its hiding place. At about ll:30 Frank Klein was called in by the state. After being sworn in he told how Otis Sayage, Ralph Gibons and himself had planned tbe robbery- Ralph Gibons was at first not inclined to take any part in the robbery because, as he said, he had a family to look after. Then Frank testified that Gibons said, "Well I have to rob some one before spring." The signals which Gibons was to give in case tusney was in the treasury box were agreed, upon. On the night of the robbery Frank testified that be went to bed about V o'clock, and that Savage woke him shortly alter ten, and informed bim that coin was to arrive that nigul by ex press and that they could get it. After hearing this Frank got up and they both proiteeded east 00 Third street until they came 10 Court street,when they proceeded north. Otis stopped in at Wisemans for a few moments, and Frank went down near Maelz & Pundt's. They again met near the corner of Second and Court streets. While there Frank says that Ben Eben and some one else passed them, but Frank did not know who this other person was. After these two had gone by,Mr. Allaway, of the D. P. and A. Co. went pasC Then they proceeded ea&t in the alley bacK of the old Sun office until they came to the walx across the ailey on Washington slreet,where they got the iron with which the box was opened. After waiting a short time the express wagon came up with Frank Hill and Ralph Gibons on the seat. After the express matter bad been put in the express office Ralph Gib bons gave the signals agreed upon, and he repeated them as the express wagon drove off. As coon as the wagon was out of sight Frank and Otis came out of hid ing and proceeded to . the express office. Frank unlocked the door of the express office with a key which he had fashioned after the one given him by Gibons. Once inside the office they hunted up tbe treas ury box, and alter two attempts broke it open, t here were five sacks of coin in the box. Klein and Savage took four sacks and went north on Washington street until they came to the alley, which one of them ran up and dropped a card back of J. O. Mack's. They then went around the Cosmopolitan hotel to an old shanty where the money was thrown. After doing this they went to Frank's home and retired. Frank was asked about tbe iron he used in prying open the box, wben court adjourned till 1 :30. At 1:30 Frank Klein was again placed on the stand. He identified the iron and also tbe shoes he wore on the night of the robbery. He threw the shoes nnder the sidewalk back of Stabling & Williams' because they were worn out. The state here turned the witness over to the defense. The cross examination was taken up by Attorney Wilson. On cross examination Klein testified that he made tbe iron about three weeks after the trip to Badger lake and the bar was under the cross walk for about five weeks before the robbery was committed. He hid part of the money in his father's yard, but no one knew it -was there ex cept himself. He knew nothing about the $200 which was missing. Just as we go to press Klein ia relating where the money was hid. ' Thursday's Beport. Klein waa on the stand yesterday wben we went to press, fie was not cross ex amined very severely by the defense; all his answers were straight for a word but he seemed to besitste a little before saying anything. Tbe prosecution wound np by asking the following question. " JUein nave you told everything yon know about this robbery in court." Klein immediately answered, "Yes, sir." Chris Bills waa then called in. He testi fied that he held no official position at the time of the robbery, had lived in The Dalles a number ot yeara and was well acquainted with both Savage and Gibbons. When he was asked in regard to a conversation he had heard between Savage and Klein he stated that about a week ago he waa de livering milk in the vicinity of Second and Liberty street when he saw Savage and Klein coming towards him irom Klein's house. Bills then went Into Al Bettingen'a yard and listened to what. Savage and Klein were talking about. When aaked what he beard, he replied that Klein said, "I am afraid they are onto ua" that waa about all of the conversation that be could catch Thia happened more than a week ago, or about a week after the robbsry waa com' mitted. On cross examination Bills said that he was in the northeast corner of Bettingen'a yard lying down, that it waa very dark that night, bnt that be could easely recognize Sayage and Klein. He even heard the conversation at about 8 o'clock in the even ing. He was then asked if he had told everything he knew abont the robbery, and answering that be had he was dismissed. Mrs. Klein was tbe next witness called. She testified that she was tho mother of Frank Klein and that be went to bed some time between 8 and 8:30. Savage came about 10 JO and woke Frank. They went 1 away together. On cross examinatian she and that Savage had been staying at ber house for some time bat, did not remember of jait how long. The first she knew that her son was implicated in the robbery, was after his confession last Sunday. She did not know- that any money was buried in her yard prior to that time. She neither saw it buried nor taken away. Did not know the men were searching for the money when they first came to tbe house. She was then asked in regard to Savage s prop erty and stated that abe knew nothing about it. Then tbe following question waa aaked: ''Do vou hold title to any of Savase'a Dronertv" She answered "No sir; not that 1 know 01. one am noi y claim to any of his land on thia side of the rivor or on he other aide, neither did she ay claim to any of his notea or horses. Sh was asked if she had any feeling in tbe case outside of her son, and she answered. I have no feeling only for my aon to get out of this as easily as possible." Mr. Allaway was then called. He came np on the train from Portland the night of the robbery. He got off on the aouth aide and went east on First strtet to the east side of Court, wben he turned north on Conrt street and saw Savage and Klein near Second street, standing with their backa ud against Harris' store. Thev were near aome empty dry goods boxea. They were about a hundrei feet from the alley Mr. Lvtle was then examined, and said that he was agent for the O, R. 4 N. Co., and understood that Kalph Gibona had a kev to the exoress office. Sunday, after the robbery, he asked Gibons for the key, but he said be did not have it. Frank Hill was recalled and tis'ified that Gibons was given a key to the office so that he (Uibousl could Bit into toe office to wake Tibbeta for the trains. He told the court about the number of pack ages that arrived that eyeoing, and that Gibona helped him unload. Then he re peated tbe story about the dropping of the treasury box by Gibons, and other things that happened in the office on the night of the robbery. Sheriff Driver was the next witness, After telling what be did when he was notified of the robbery, the prosecution asked him to describe tbe manner in which he obtained the length of Savage's foot This, he said, be did by placing a stick on the sole of Savage's foot, wbile ha (Savage) was lying down on a bencb. On cross examination Bennet held a shoe in front of Driver.'and ssked him if be could by plaoing the stick along the sole, tell whetl erit was longer or shorter. Driver said it was shorter. The sheriff described the footprints left in the alley. M. A. Moodv waa called and he also described tbe footprints. Beckwith and Simmons were both re called, bnt neither-one remembered what became of the papera with which they measured the footprints. A. S. Bonnet, attorney for the defense, waa then called, but as he did not possess the articles which were supposed to be in his po'ses-iioo be was dismissed. Tbe defense did not oall in any witnesses. Both the State and the defense rested the case without argument. Gibons and Savage's bail was reduced to 83000. Thus ended one of the greatest preliminary examinations that was ever held in Tbe Dalles. Death am Old Pioneer. Mr. Henry Ulerisb, aged about 63 years, died at the county hospital thia morning.

Baird second assistant general freight agent.-St, Paul, in charge of Asiatio tr the and such other duties as may be assigned to him as general assistant. Robert Rintoul. division freight agent, St. Paul, in charge of traffic in North Dakota west of the Mis souri river, Montana and Idaho, except; points in Idaho reached via tbe Spokane & Palouae branch," Mr. J. S. Fish, N. J. Sinnott and Walter Klindt retnrLed yesterday from a tew days' hunt up Hood River valley. Their return without any large game was a sore dissa- poinment to their many friends. Saturday when they started 00 the bunt, we were told that we might expect to see tbe deer and bear market flooded, but as yet we haye not seen any sign of either, although Nick claims to have seen some signs of bear wbile in tbe mountains. Whenever any of the parties wbo made np the hunt are asked about it they act like the detectives, before Klein's confession. It is whispered around tout a couple of birds and a few fish were brought home, but we cannot vouch for that. Jos. H. Hunt's Close Call. Fossil Journal. Jas. S. Hunt had a narrow eFcape from drowning in the John Day Tuesday laat, while returning home from Sboofly with D. C. Gilliiand, constable, V. T. Matlock of Lone Rock and Harry Johnson. The party excepting Harry, wbo is a partner of Mr. Hunt's, succeeded in fording the river at tbe mouth of Horseshoe. Harry, who was formerly a sailor in the British navy but bad neyer learned to swim, was riding a colt, aod both were just a little bit skit tish about tackling the treacherous John Day, Mr. Hunt started back to Harry's rescue, with the intention ot changing horses with him, bnt when nearly acroas Jim's horse stnmbled on the rocks and fell over in the riyer. Although not oyer belly deep, the current was very strong, and Jim was carried down 50 yards or so when he succeeded 10 getting hold of a large rock. Mr. Matlook suooeeded in crossiog back farther np tbe riyer, and riding rapidly down till opposite Mr. Hunt, threw a rope to him and another on to his floundering horse and dragged both out of the river, unhurt, but scared out of a winter's growth. The Reward Given- Seeing an item in Yesterday! Telegram by detective Sam Simmons, to the effect that no one received the reward offered by the Pacific Express Company for the ap prehension of the robbers and the recovery of the money stolen, our reporter called on Sheriff Driver and aiked him the same question that was asked detective Simmons i. e. "Who will get the rewarJ?" Sheriff Driver answered,. "I have received all the re ward that has been given; but Mr. Sim mons did not know thia wben he gave that statement to tbe Telegram." Mr. Driver went on to state that aa soon as any persona, bound over to appear before the grand jury, were convicted he would receive tbe addi tional reward of $230 for each oooviction. Thus it will be seen that if Klein, Savage and Gibons are convicted Sheriff Driver will leceive a reward of $2250. DOJI'T BE FOOLED by the dealer wno brings out some thing else, that pays hiui better, and says that it ia "just as goed." Doctor Pierce's Golden Medieal Discovery is guar anteed. If it don't benefit or cure, in every case, you have your money back. No other medi cine of its kind is so eertain and effective that it can be sold so. Is any other likely to be "just as good"? As a blood-cleanser, flesh-builder, and strength-restorer, nothing can equal tha "Discovery." It's not like the sarsapa rillas, or ordinary "spring medicines." At all seasons, and in all cases, It puri fies, invigorates, and builds up the whole system. For every blood-taint and disorder, from a common blotch or erup tion, to the worst scrofula, it Is a perfect, permanent, guaranteed remedy. abetters Advertised The following is tho list of letters re maining in The Dalles postofhoe uncalled for Saturday, Oot. 26, 1894.

Professor Shaw, chemist at the agri cultural experiment station at Corvallis, i3 delving into the problem what can- aigre will do for Oregon farmers. The experiment began last week, and in due time will be reported in a bulletin. Can- aigre is a duid tnat tormerly grew in a wild Etate in Arizona, but more recently haa been cultivated with indifferent suc cess. It is used for tannine leather for which it is equal if not superior to oak or hemlock bark, and sells in this coun try at 20 per ton, in Vienna at fC5 per ton. Ten to 15 tons per acre is the pos sible yield, and it costs $20 per acre to grow it. A warm climate with plenty of moisture is necessary to successful cultivation, and for this reason the pro fessor thinks that in Eastern Oregon, where, irrigation is possible, the bulb may be successfully grown and become one of that section's exports. The "ex periment will include a trial in all por tions oi the state. When Baby was sick, we gave her Castorla. When she was a Child, she c-ied tor Castoria.

Oeafnttee Cannot Ue Cared By local applications as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucuous limning of the Eustachian tube. When this tube is lnnamea you have a rambling sound or imperfect bearing, and when It is entirely closed, deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be de stroyed forever; nine cases ont often are caused by catarrh, which -is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous sur faces. We will give One Handred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars; free. F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, O.
